Port Douglas Googlies (Redspot Emperor, Pikey Bream, Javelin Fish, Jewfish)


Question

Hi all,

Had a good holiday a couple of weeks ago to Port Douglas. It was mostly about the family and the swimming pool, but I did sneak out for a few sessions. The thing I love about fishing the tropics is that everything you catch is different. Can anyone confirm the fish IDs on these? All small, but quite fascinating all the same.

Exhibit one: Is this a sweetlip?

Exhibit Two: Could this be my first ever pikey bream?

Javelin fish?

And I caught a ton of these...to the point I got bored. At first I thought I'd encountered a plague of soapies, but now I'm not so sure. The only thing I can think of is they look like those 'Yellow Croaker' things I have seen frozen in the Asian supermarkets.

I did have a flick with lures, had something big and silver thump a big plastic at the Port Douglas Marina wall, but not much else.

Mike
